Things We Forgot Happened in 2015

Banner - 2015 memories

2015 was a long year — 365 days to be exact. A lot can happen in 365 days. Friendships can be made (and broken), phone screens can be cracked, Netflix binges can be completed and begun and completed again. There are a ton of things that we forgot happened in the last twelve months. Here are a few:

Ariana Grande licked a donut and said she hated America

Justin Bieber got hot (and – dare I say – talented) #Sorry

Neil Patrick Harris hosted the Academy Awards in his underwear

Leonardo DiCaprio still didn’t win an Oscar

Tom Brady was accused of deflating balls in an incident known affectionately as “Deflategate”

Tom Brady set the record for most Superbowl wins by a quarterback

Left Shark stole the Superbowl half-time show

The war on gluten kicked in to high gear

The Pope came to DC

The Pope’s encyclical Laudato Sí focused on the environment

Microbeads were banned in the U.S.

New York Times asked, “Would you kill baby Hitler?” and people freaked out

Obama tweeted that NYT was ridiculous for suggesting peas in guacamole

“The dress”

Georgetown opened the old Jes Res dorm

Georgetown renamed the buildings of the old Jes Res

Georgetown basketball won a game in the NCAA Tournament

Georgetown blew out Villanova by 20 points at the Verizon Center

Villanova included Georgetown gear in its basketball fan pack (dummies)

Bradley Hayes learned to play basketball (and is actually really good)

DSR broke our hearts by declaring for the NBA draft (but then came back)

LJ Peak played on the gold-medal winning USA U-23 basketball team

Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Part 2 premiered

Star Wars: The Force Awakens broke a bunch of records

Hillary Clinton lied about her emails

Volkswagen lied to everyone

People sucked cups to try to get Kardashian-esque lips

Kim Kardashian’s rear end continued to break the Internet

Hoyas, we at 4E hope you had an incredible 2015 with some truly unforgettable memories.

Cupcake ATM…?

cupcakeATM

Rumor has it that Sprinkles cupcakes tried to make a cupcake ATM on M street. This would be kind of sick – you could walk up to the store, type in your selection and a perfectly frosted cupcake would be delivered straight to your outstretched hand. It was slated to open last fall, but for some unfortunate reason it never did.

Although this walk-up ATM would have been super cool, it’s really nothing compared to these crazy drive-thru’s:

Stanford Hospital and Clinics: Stanford made a drive-thru emergency room for highly contagious patients.

Ottawa Public Library: A Canada library opened a 24-hour drive-thru window. I didn’t even know Canadians could read. Whoops.

Double Shot Liquor and Guns: This Texas drive-thru obviously sells both guns and booze. This sounds really dangerous.

Adams Funeral Home: A funeral home in California allows mourners to pay their final respects to the deceased in a large glass display window. I think it is the largest cause of nightmares in the United States.

The Donut Hole: This might have been the inspiration for Sprinkles’ ATM. Customers drive through a huge donut to get to the pickup window. Getting donuts inside of a donut? Donut-ception.

Compared to these unconventional and mildly sacrilegious establishments, we have no idea why Sprinkles’ cupcake ATM failed. Hopefully they’ll try again this year.

You Donut Want to Miss This Event at Leo’s

Donuts at Leo's

Here at 4E, we’ve certainly had our fair share of posts good-naturedly knocking the hallowed establishment that is Leo J. O’ Donovan Dining Hall. But it was only a matter of time before Leo’s announced a crazy cool promotion, and today is that day.

Through their Twitter account (@gtowndining), Leo’s announced that tomorrow, Nov. 19, at 11 a.m., the first 300 meal plan holders who show up will get a FREE donut from District Doughnut and free samples of Compass Coffee.

You can get this FOR FREE.

What’s more, these free treats will be brought to you by a member of D.C. United. That’s right. D.C. United, the Major League Soccer team, has donated the services of some players to give you, the humble Georgetown student, donuts and coffee. Besides more reasonable meal plans and better food, what more could a Leo’s meal plan holder want?

I repeat: someone from this team might be handing YOU a free donut.

So tomorrow, going to Leo’s will be what the cool kids are all doing. Show up at 11 (or realistically, before 11) to get your free goodies!
